The idea to call the exhibition Life Force (which links from Whisperings of the Earth), came from George Bernard Shaw's concept of Life Force. Put simply, his central idea of Life Force is that it experiments in order to create better forms of life - that is life gradually evolves, including in the next.
“You see things; and you say why? But I dream things never were; and I say, ‘why not?’’ George Bernard Shaw
